It's A Funny Friday

While window shopping at Macy's today I overheard a woman say, "Honey, we are shopping not just wandering around." I saw her look down, so I assumed she was talking to a child. When her little girl walked into my line of sight I saw she was about 13 months old. Man, that is one woman with a purpose.

I had to bite my lips to keep from laughing out loud.

This is a true conversation I had with my boy-o not 10 minutes ago:

"Mom? Do we have any Holy Water?" asked my son, the Jesus wannabe.

"Uh, no. We're fresh out," I replied.

"Don't we have any packets we can use to make some?"

"Evan, Holy Water is not like Kool-Ade. You can't just whip up a batch."

"Huh," pause "because I could really go for a glass of Holy Water."

Flynn, after having asked politely for a piece of candy, "Mommy? Did you like how I asked nicely? I was using my good manners on you."

I saw someone walking down Prospect today carrying a cross. I'm not kidding. A huge 10-foot cross.

His shoes looked a little more comfortable than those of Jesus and he also had some padding on his shoulders.

The husband and I loved the holy water bit. Kids are so funny. When I was in school (as a baptist kid at holy cross) I thought the priest had knocked up about a hundred women because all these kids kept calling him father.

Did I see you at Target scoring big post-Easter bargains about 10 this morning? If not, you have someone that looks a whole lot like you roaming around town :)
